Sordini razziali Alla loro vicenda si affiancano altre storie voci che si susseguono e si intersecano punti di vista molteplici ma nonostante il clima di disperazione e di violenza che si respira in certe pagine tutto sfocia nell'ottimismo la Città è comunue un luogo che offre la la possibilità di costruirsi una vita indipendente e realizzata Connotato da ricca invenzione linguistica Jazz a lungo ai vertici delle classifiche statunitensi è un grandioso affresco dell'America di colore all'epoca della Grande Depressione ma al contempo è anche pura music. A Scandalous TrioJazz music is rarely the immediate subject matter of this exceptional novel However jazz influences much of the novel's structure and atmosphere The narrator describes a party in terms of “Red dresses Yellow shoes And of course race music to urge them on” The three main protagonists – Dorcas an 18 year old girl Joe a handsome 50 year old cosmetics salesman and Violet Joe's pretty 50 year old wife – form an ensemble a trio “a scandalising threesome if not exactly a menage a trois The three characters are introduced and the essence of the novel's plot is set out in the first paragraph In each of the following chapters Toni Morrison delves into some of the past of each character as well as their shared past It's as if each chapter is a solo that enables the character or the narrator on their behalf to improvise and elaborate on the main riff of the novelCrazy About This City of JazzJazz became a slang term for sexual intercourse soon after its creation as a musical form It's possible that this is the main connotation of the word used in the title The novel seems to be primarily interested in sex lust desire touch seduction passion romance loneliness longing craving and loveThe novel is set in Harlem in 1926 Earlier in 1906 Joe and Violet the descendents of black slaves left rural Vesper County Virginia and moved to New York attracted by the music and romance of the city and the potential for better paid jobs “Like a million running from want and violence they could hardly wait to get there and love it backThere in a city they are not so much new as themselves their stronger riskier selvesI'm crazy about this CityIt was a City seeping music that begged and challenged each and every day ‘Come’ it said ‘Come and do wrong’It was the music The dirty get on down music the women sang and the men played and both danced to close and shameless or apart and wildWhere you can find danger or be it; where you can fight till you drop and smile at the knife when it misses and when it doesn't” Private CracksThe narrator says Violet has “private cracks She suffers from a fragmented self “I call them cracks because that is what they were Not openings or breaks but dark fissures in the globe light of the daySometimes when Violet isn't paying attention she stumbles into these cracks like the time when instead of putting her left heel forward she stepped back and folded her legs in order to sit in the street” Joe and Violet disagree over whether to have children and presumably are now beyond the age when it is possible or convenient Violet stares at children in the street and goes to bed cuddling a toy doll each night although she and Joe aren’t obviously estranged “He's what I got He's what I got” Violet explains her plight in simple terms “I messed up my own life Before I came north I made sense and so did the world We didn't have nothing but we didn't miss itWhat's the world for if you can't make it up the way you want it” To Freeze or FlyWhich brings us back to the first paragraph on the first page “Sth I know that woman She used to live with a flock of birds on Lenox Avenue Know her husband too He fell for an eighteen year old girl with one of those deep down spooky loves that made him so sad and happy he shot her just to keep the feeling going When the woman her name is Violet went to the funeral to see the girl and to cut her dead face they threw her to the floor and out of the church She ran then through all that snow and when she got back to her apartment she took the birds from their cages and set them out the windows to freeze or fly including the parrot that said ‘I love you’ This language is typical of the novel It's casual almost conversational yet somehow dense with information and detail At the same time it's both imaginative and lyricalReckless Reciprocal LoveAt the end of the novel the narrator reveals her own views on the uest for love “I havelonged to be able to say'that I have loved only you surrendered my whole self reckless to you and nobody else That I want you to love me back and show it to me That I love the way you hold me how close you let me be to you’” This focus on reciprocity seems to be a natural extension of the uestion of identity or the self of not just black Americans but all people of whatever race or background which might account for the success of Toni Morrison's novel with white readersParadoxically this realisation occurs at the level of the narrator an omniscient narrator who refers to herself as a “know it all self” and the reader It doesn't seem to emerge from the relationship between any two of the three protagonists Indeed it contrasts with their relationships Perhaps literature art and music are the substitute for love where it can't be found between two people In the case of jazz “the body is the vehicle not the point” It helps us to “reachfor something beyond way beyond and way way down underneath tissue”SOUNDTRACKA Thorn Here A Spike Thereview spoilerTerence Blanchard Branford Marsalis uartet Mo' Better Blues Webster Friends Mo' Better Blues Lee She's Gotta Have It Williams Harlem Blues Parker Almost Like Being In Love Davis Time After TimehttpswwwyoutubecomwatchvFpZHjKeith Jarrett Trio Never Let Me Go Webster Friends I Like Pie Webster Friends I Like Pie The New Power Generation Diamonds And Pearls National Symphony Orchestra Mo'Better Blues hide spoiler

Jazz By Toni MorrisOrk degli anni Venti dall'incedere frenetico e la Virgina del dall'atmosfera più lenta e lirica Joe e Violet rappresentano uel flusso migratorio di neri che all'inizio del Novecento lasciò le zone rurali per riversarsi nella Città ed è in uel mondo segnato dal razzismo e dalla segregazione che si sviluppa la love story a tre carica di passione e tragedia I protagonisti sono accomunati da un passato di disagi e sofferenze l'uomo è stato abbandonato dalla madre sua moglie proviene da una famiglia poverissima e l'amante ha perso i genitori durante dei di. Sth I know that woman She used to live with a flock of birds on Lenox Avenue Know her husband too He fell for an eighteen year old girl with one of those deepdown spooky loves that made him so sad and happy he shot her just to keep the feeling going When the woman her name is Violet went to the funeral to see the funeral and cut her dead face they threw her to the floor and out of the church She ran then through all that snow and when she got back to her apartment she took the birds from their cages and set them out the windows to freeze or fly including the parrot that said I love you With this terrific first paragraph which encapsulates most of the story Toni Morrison begins Jazz her short novel which however covers an extremely broad canvas It is the story of Violet and Joe Trace and their waning marriage; it is the story of the puritanical Alice Manfred and her flighty niece Dorcas who falls for Joe; it is the story of Golden Gray the mulatto born of a black father and a white mother; it is the story of the Wild Woman Joe Trace's mother never seen yet always present in the woods but above all it is the story of Harlem in the 1920's and its sinful music jazzMorrison uses a jagged storytelling style with the narrative shifting in the verbal euivalent of jump cuts between people places and events Linearity is purposefully foregone with the author wrong footing the reader intentionally in many places In the middle of the novel when we are neck deep in the story of Violet Joe Dorcas and Alice the narrative suddenly jumps to the story of Golden Gray on the uest for his father; who initially has only the most tenuous of connections to the tale overall The author confuses us thoroughly before tying the two threads togetherToni Morrison here even while being the omnipresent narrator confesses to being not in full charge of her characters she says I ought to get out of this place Avoid the window; leave the hole I cut through the door to get in lives instead of having one of my own It was loving the City that distracted me and gave me ideas Made me think I could speak its loud voice and make that sound sound human I missed the people altogetherI thought I knew them and wasn't worried that they didn't really know about me Now it's clear why they contradicted me at every turn they knew me all along Out of the corners of their eyes they watched me And when I was feeling most invisible being tight lipped silent and unobservable they were whispering about me to each other They knew how little I could be counted on; how poorly how shabbily my know it all self covered helplessness That when I invented stories about them and doing it seemed to me so fine I was completely in their hands managed without mercy The story here is writing itself using the hapless author as a medium To understand how its possible one has to understand the City and its uniue music which made even unwilling people dance to its jagged and kaleidoscopic melodyJazz music evolved out of the inherent need for the black people to express themselves even when their arms legs and even spirit were chained Arising out of Africa's primitive music traditions jazz was a fusion of Africa with Europe It is non linear and jagged; a pot pourri of various notes and beats Nobody would call it classical; there were many who thought it sinful; but you can't deny one thing it makes you danceCome dance with Toni Morrison The night is still young
